The fashion designer Elsa Barreto was born in 1966 in Braga, Portugal.
Her interest in fashion started at an early age, creating clothes for her own dolls, and later for herself and her friends.
She grew up revealing an unconventional fashion vision.
Wearing bold and unequal garments, she expressed herself through her creations and style.
In 1987, Elsa graduated from Porto Fashion Academy winning the the national New Talent contest in her final year.
Right after, she started working in the field, being responsible for the woman’s creation department of a big Portuguese textile. Four years later, driven by the desire of sharing her own fashion vision to the public, she decided to launch her own label.
